AKRON, Ohio – They say par is a good score in a major. If that's true next week at the PGA Championship, then Tiger Woods is already dialed in. Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event - matching the PGA Tour record he shares for victories in a single tournament. As he walked to the scorer's trailer to finalize his score, he scooped up young son Charlie. After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson. Woods' mastery at Firestone Country Club allowed him to again match Sam Snead's PGA Tour record for wins in an event. Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Earlier this year, Woods won at Bay Hill for the eighth time. As if he weren't already the favorite next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, the lopsided victory reinforced it. No one ever got within six shots all day of the world's No. 1. When he had a good shot at a pin, he took it. Otherwise, he took few, if any, risks. He had birdied the short, par-4 first hole each of the first three days, and had played the second in 3 under as well. But he came up just short on the opening hole and chipped up for an easy par. At the second, he found a fairway bunker off the tee, blasted out and hit his approach to 10 feet but his birdie putt skidded off the edge. Tap-in par.
